Emory’s hometown of Atlanta is the business, healthcare, and cultural capital of the Southeast, where you can take advantage of nearly 2,000 internship opportunities in Atlanta and over 10,000 beyond. Study breaks are for soaking in the art scene and diverse dining options, or retreating into nature by kayaking, hiking, or walking local nature trails.
Students admitted through the Match have the option to choose to enroll at Emory College of Arts and Sciences on the Atlanta campus or Oxford College, in Oxford, GA (38 miles east of Atlanta). Oxford College is only for first- and second-year students. All Oxford students continue to the Atlanta campus for their junior and senior year either in Emory College, the Goizueta Business School, or the School of Nursing.
All first-year students enroll in the First-Year at Emory Program, offering students unique academic programming taught in small classes, as well as social events, helping students acclimate to the community. Classes are taught by leading faculty in their fields, and advisors are faculty familiar with your program. Beyond the classroom, internships, study abroad, and research opportunities abound as well!
With over 325 student clubs, sports teams, and performing arts groups - and our unusual and fun traditions - Emory is a great place for students who want to organize, lead, and be a part of it all. You can enjoy Wonderful Wednesdays, where each week a different campus organization sponsors activities in the heart of campus, such as Puppy-palooza, bouncy castles, or live music. Oxford Olympics is an annual tournament during Orientation week where the residence halls compete for the championship.
